Go inside a luxurious family-friendly home in Westmount that’s an oasis in the city.
When the chaos of back-to-school activities returns each September, one of the calming factors for both kids and parents can be retreating to the tranquility of their home at the end of the day. While, many Westmount family homes enjoy that quality, one house is kicking it out of the park! Meticulously renovated, designer planned & seamlessly integrated with modern enhancements, this 6-bdrm, 4+1-bath home at 3180 The Boulevard is the ultimate in family friendly living in the city.
Size and space first lured the current owners to this classic 3-storey Westmount home designed by renowned architect Percy Nobbs. Built between 1921-1925, it was an old house… but had good bones. It had been maintained by its owners for 40 years… but needed to fit a modern family’s lifestyle and needs. What convinced them to buy and renovate was the promise of ideal family-friendly living. Specifically, the peace of a private home set back from the road combined with the proximity to downtown Montreal. The renovation results? A sophisticated, family-friendly home that has the perfect blend of historical beauty and modern luxuries.
“What we were looking for was a home that had oversized space for a big family that we could make our own, regardless if it needed major renovations!” explains the current owner. “Tackling at 4,100sq house could be daunting but we felt that Montreal designer Scott Yetman of Scott Yetman Design had the perfect eye for creating a layout and a subtle flow to the house that opened up the rooms and connected the family living spaces, but didn’t compromise the architectural integrity of the house.” Designed with a busy family lifestyle in mind, while artfully blending traditional style with extensive modern enhancements, it’s a beautiful example of how you can turn a classic Westmount house into a luxurious, modern, family-friendly residence.

Short commute…to school AND downtown
A stone’s throw from some of Westmount’s finest private school means a short commute for kids so parents can get on with their busy days. Plus, we love that this home is situated on the east side of Westmount which means minimal work commute if your office is in the downtown core. You just gained 10 minutes extra coffee time at home! Easy access to Mount Royal for dog walking and biking is a HUGE BONUS!
They ordered a Double-Double
Entertaining, houseguests, parties and day-to-day life are a cinch with 2 dishwashers, 2 stoves and 2 washing machines! Throw in an oversized kitchen, island and a walk-in pantry and hosting family and friends is a pleasure.
The basement and mudroom are kid heaven and every parent’s dream. Essentially a 4th floor that is above ground, these spaces are bright, big and give kids their own space to come and go from the laneway without coming through the front door. No more mud at the front door or hockey gear in the hallway!
A rare find in the city of Westmount, a private lane benefits both kids and parents! The lane is safe, flat and removed from the busy streets for kids to run & play. For parents, the lane offers privacy from The Boulevard as you can access the house from the back. Directly off Mount Pleasant Ave. it’s quick access to Cedar Ave. if you’re headed downtown.
The house that keeps on giving
With the option to build a 2 car garage and deck this home has even more potential.
